Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Philippians 4:10 -19
Managing all that I have received from God –the people in my life, my work, my possessions both concrete and metaphysical –is full-time work! Yet I, like all children of this age, so often fall into the trap of envying the ‘more’ and ‘better’ things or attributes that others possess. The gifts I have received at the hand of God are innumerable. Do I take time to be grateful for what I have, or do I spend my time envying the possessions of others? Holy Spirit of God, help me be content with what I have.
It is well with those who deal generously and lend... For the righteous will never be moved. (Psalm 112: 5, 6 )
Jesus loves you always, even when you don’t feel worthy.
St. Teresa of Calcutta
